When we view ourselves through the lenses of the world around us, we get a distorted picture of ourselves. We often see someone who doesn’t quite measure up. When our self-worth is based on beauty or performance, failure is always looming. We wake up with zits, or we spill coffee on the boss at lunch. Perhaps it’s weightier than that. We face permanent disfigurement from an accident or get fired from our dream job. Whether simple or serious, we often base our perceptions of ourselves on our circumstances and what other people think about us. This fickle basis for our worth can produce feelings of insecurity, inadequacy, fear, and anxiety.
In God’s View of You, we learn to view ourselves through the clear lenses of God’s Word. When we see ourselves as God sees us, we can replace our fears and insecurity with confidence in God and His ability to provide our peace and security. Wherever you are in life, you can benefit from a renewed view of you. Women from eighteen to eighty have found this material to be valuable, practical, and even life-changing.
As a mental health practitioner, I have shared material from God’s View of You with my clients and found it to be very beneficial, as they have gained more insight into what affects their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The information provides a tool kit to live in this world through your faith in Christ. As a mother, I was so pleased when my daughter decided to attend the God’s View of You Bible study. The information helped her understand more about her identity in Christ and assisted her in battling her eating disorder.

God’s View of You points to our true Source of value like no other teaching I have been through. It is saturated with God’s Word, and encourages you to meditate on suggested scriptures. God is the only One who can truly make changes in us, and this study leads you through life-changing verses.
Thank you, Colleen for all the love, energy and time you have poured into this Bible study. It has helped me work through so much, and also encouraged me to take the leap I needed to take to say “no more” to my eating disorder because I am confident in God and His Word.
I have felt rejection in my life with a capital “R,” but now I look into God’s Word and am lifted up. God’s View of You has given me spiritual direction and shown me how alive God’s Word is.
